Sitting on top of their favourite ‘Spring, Swing, Rocking’ transport devices, they’re taken to worlds never seen by their eyes before. Please sit tight, and enjoy this little adventure together…” – Stephen Chan

Fun Facts: Going deeper in to the theme of ‘Play’ and back to the primary stages of learning as children, I have tried to be clever in my use of colour for the 3 pieces (to work well as a set of Illustrations).

Firstly, from left to right you can see that I have used traffic light colours, which is reminiscent of childhood days of learning to cross the road and playground games (it also links to the fact that they are ‘Riders’ on transport).

Secondly, the number of colours (can you see it yet?) the first piece is a 1 colour screenprint, then 2 colour, then 3 colour (well 2 colour and overprinting techiques achieving the 3rd colour)
